Ray

As I understood it - they planned on turning OQRS on after they finished checking/fixing log issues. I did ask one of the pilots earlier today if that was still the plan - and when I hear back - I will update.

"LoTW upload will be done after log corrections within 3 month after coming back."

The OQRS will be turned on after a "log checK" and it sounds like the LoTW will wait until after everyone has written in for busted call fixes, etc.

My question is will they do uploads sooner for those submitting for OQRS.

Yes - they are posted on LOTW (all five band fills that I made are now confirmed) but the OQRS (for paper cards) does not appear to have been activated? They hadn't planned on uploading to LOTW for three months - I wonder what changed their mind?

I don't know, you'd have to ask them.

What I do know, from my own minor DXpeditioning, is that if you do LOTW reasonably promptly at the end or during the expedition, it cuts the card volume down by half.

I have read reports from larger DXpeditions that when they do their uploads in six months or a year or whatever their cut-off is, that is the day incoming QSL cards essentially cease.

So, it's a trade-off between whatever you think you are going to get for QSL money / post Expedition contributions and reducing the QSLing burden.  How and why they made the trade-off they did is their decision.

And, my experience, at least, is that most of the cards come in the first 30 to 60 days whatever scheme you use.

But nobody expects QSL money to come remotely close to paying for the expedition anyway.  It's welcome income and (as I recall) it was enough for FT5ZM to make up for a funding shortfall when they left port.  But it will not fund the expedition however it is done, that's for sure.

It was a well run DXpedition and even though I have the LOTW, I'm still going to donate some $ for the paper card.


BTW Mr. WO7R - congratulations on the 5B WAZ!

My busted call QSO showed up in LOTW even though they hadn't responded to my email requesting a busted call fix (I got them on 80 and 20, but my 40 meter QSO was only listed under KF0Q).  

This was an ATNO for me, so I'm happy.

I am still going to donate money to get a paper card, and I always like to reward a well-run Dxpedition.  In any event, I (as someone licensed since 1968) still love getting the cards, particularly the ones from exotic locations.  It's one of the many things that makes ham radio so much fun!
